The Most Photographed Cities on Earth
Google released a heat map that highlights the Earth’s most photographed locales. Data included in Sightsmap comes from geolocated images uploaded by individual users to the Google Maps Panoramio service, which associates images with locations in Google Maps and Google Earth. You can even begin planning a trip with the map by selecting a starting point and destination, which brings up estimated travel time and links to travel sites.
Smart markers show the top 10 cities automatically; additional cities are featured once you zoom in (the map will also highlight the top 10 cities in the visible area). When you zoom in far enough, the pictures themselves can be viewed for an even more illustrative experience.
